Large Scale Quantum Simulations using Ultracold Atoms

BildCopyright: Prof. Dr. Bloch

More than 30 years ago, Richard Feynman outlined his vision of a quantum simulator for carrying out complex calculations on physical problems. Today, his dream is a reality in laboratories around the world. This has become possible by using complex experimental setups of thousands of optical elements, which allow atoms to be cooled to Nanokelvin temperatures, where they almost come to rest.

In my talk I will discuss the applications for quantum simulation using neutral atoms and discuss selected application highlights in science. I will discuss the status of the field and give an outlook on future scalability of the different underlying systems.
